Editorial: Diversity Forum

EDITORIAL: We have been called the melting pot of the world and while we are all Americans we all have qualities that make us unique. And while those qualities can be admired for many for others, they can be divisive. 

That's why WTVM and One Columbus are presenting the annual diversity forum "Building Bridges, Changing Lives." 

This year's topic is civility. We're talking with a diverse group of students from Shaw High School about diversity effects their lives and how they see the world. 

We'll also have a panel of experts ready to answer your questions about everything from the generation gap to bullying.

Please join us at the RiverCenter's studio theater Thursday night at 7 pm as we try to bring a better understanding of each other to the people of Columbus. 

If you can't join us at the river center you can join us on air WTVM as well as wtvm.com and on Vounce TV.

Please join us and don't miss this important community event.

General Manager Lee Brantley brings two editorials a week to WTVM.  If you would like to respond to an editorial, write to:
